Today I made my first outing to Durant Nature Park to take in the fall colors. It was overcast and windy and even though it looked like it was going to rain a few times, which would have been nice since we are still in a drought here, it was overall a nice day. Durant Nature Park is smaller then Umstead Park which I visited just about a month ago but none the less, it still provided plenty of photo opportunities while I wondered around the trails around the lakes. I did see some wildlife but was not able to get close enough to get good pictures. I really need to get a zoom lens for my camera so I can get those close up wildlife photos. Oh well, I’ll keep on wishing for now. Any ways, enjoy the photos. I did take a few HDR shots so keep an eye out for them in the gallery (HDR will be in the name). HINT: The first and forth photo in this post are 2 of 8 of the HDR photos.

Well after I got my haircut I decided to take a side trip to Umstead Park before going grocery shopping. I wondered around the park for almost 2 hours and took some pictures since I had my camera with me. I think I walked around 2 miles around the park but the weather was great so it was all good.
